Increasing investment towards development of new vaccines will drive the global vaccines market over the coming years. For instance, researchers at Scripps Research Florida has been successful in developing a non-traditional vaccine to defeat SIVmac239 viral strain nicknamed as the ‘death star’. The non-traditional vaccine developed by the researchers provides durable protection to uninfected individuals from multiple forms of HIV stimulating the demand for the vaccine. Additionally, growing incidence of various infectious diseases and rising awareness about early disease diagnosis and prevention has stimulated demand for protective vaccines, hence further boosting business growth.

Several efforts undertaken by organizations including the UNICEF has increased the vaccine adoption over the years. Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) revolving fund and UNICEF supply division’s influence allows vaccines procurement at lower prices for various countries. Annually, PAHO and UNICEF procures vaccines for nearly 40 states and around 100 countries, respectively, thereby positively impacting the adoption rate.

Grassroots campaigns organized in various cities and villages of India helped in reducing number of polio cases considerably from March 2014 in the country. Grassroot campaigns enabled oral administration of polio vaccine to as many children as possible, escalating the immunisation levels significantly against Polio. Commencement of such campaigns will rise immunization levels as well as support the industry growth over the forecast timeline.

Immunization helps in preventing nearly 2 to 3 million deaths resulting from various diseases including influenza, tetanus, diphtheria, measles, pertussis and others. Furthermore, as per the WHO, more than 1.5 million deaths can be prevented owing to improvement in global vaccination coverage. In 2018, around 116.3 million children under the age of 1 year received three doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP3) vaccine globally. With increasing administration of vaccines, the vaccines business will expand significantly over the upcoming years.

Limited coverage for vaccination coupled with prohibitive cost related to transportation and storage of vaccines will negatively impact the industry expansion to certain extent in the near future. Moreover, stringent government regulations for product approval will prolong the process of new product introduction in the market, thereby slowing down the market growth.

Recombinant vaccines are largely used in animals for prevention of diseases such as pneumonia, foot and mouth disease, septicaemia and pox disease, that will further support the business growth.

High demand of recombinant vaccines to reduce incidence of malaria, swine flu, Ebola virus, cancer, Zika virus, and others coupled with good immune response delivered by these vaccines will drive the segmental growth. Developments in the field of molecular biology and genetic engineering will positively impact the growth of recombinant vaccines market.

Global Vaccines Market, By Disease

The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine market is estimated to witness over 8.0% CAGR during the forecast period owing to rising incidence of cervical cancer and growing awareness about preventive measures. The U.S. FDA has approved three vaccines namely, Gardasil 9, Gardasil, and Cervarix for prevention of infection with disease causing HPV types. High adoption of Gardasil has benefitted Merck significantly. With growing investment in R&D, the HPV vaccines industry will flourish over the foreseeable period.

Influenza vaccine market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast timeframe to reach USD 6.1 billion by 2025. Significant reduction in number of hospitalizations due to administration of flu vaccine has stimulated the growth of influenza vaccine industry. According to the CDC data, flu vaccination prevented around 5.3 million influenza illnesses, 85,000 influenza associated hospitalizations and nearly 2.6 million disease associated medical visits in the year 2016-2017.
